    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

    SC 01 EXT SPACE

    A vast sea of stars serves as the backdrop for a TITLE ROLL, which craws into infinity....

    The SPACE AROUND THE MAIN TITLE CRAWL transitions into a very ALIEN-LOOKING SPACESCAPE as the OPENING TITLE MUSIC transitions at the same time to a thrilling, adventurous rendition of REY'S THEME and SUDDENLY the MILLENNIUM FALCON races past the CAMERA and zooms forward, dodging anomaly after anomaly navigating the REDOUBT CLUSTER.
    SC 02 INT MILLENNIUM FALCON-SPACE


    C-3PO: Oh, dear, oh dear. This Redoubt Cluster is dangerous!

    R2-D2: (Whistles and tootles)

    C-3PO: I could't agree with you more, Artoo.

    D-O: Danger. Unfriendly space signals. Must warn Rey.

    BB-8: (Twiddles and beeps) (Swiveling his head)

    BB-8 and D-O race to the cockpit.

    SC 03 INT. MILLENNIUM FALCON-COCKPIT-SPACE

    REY, BEN, FINN and ROSE TICO are talking heatedly. We listen in.

    FINN: Honestly, we could have come here any other way. This way is way too dangerous and this mission is too important.

    BEN: I agree with Finn on this one, dear. What did you hope to achieve by coming through the Redoubt Cluster?

    REY: I trust the Living Force, Ben. It calls me to come this way to Csilla, although I do not know why. The reason will become apparent.

    ROSE: I'm with Rey on this one.

    We can see there is a lightsaber clipped to Rose's utility belt.

    FINN starts to say something but is interrupted by D-O and BB-8 rushing into the cockpit, BB-8 beeping madly.

    D-O: Danger! Danger! Picking up unfriendly signals. Must warn Rey!

    REY: Blast! Man the gunwells!

    Everyone rushes out. CHEWBACCA is in the co-pilot's seat. LANDO is behind CHEWIE.

    LANDO: We're in for a rough ride.

    REY: I'll say!

    Suddenly the control panel SPARKS and smokes.

    LANDO: I'll see what I can do to fix it.

    SC 04-20 EXT SPACE-REDOUBT CLUSTER/INTERCUT WITH LANDO FIXING CONTROL PANEL, TARGETING COMPUTERS, GUNWELL SHOTS AND DOGFIGHTING

    Alien ships fire upon the Millennium Falcon. Dogfighting ensues. Cut between gunners in gunwells, targeting readouts, LANDO fixing the control panel, REY piloting the ship, CLOSE UPS of the DROIDS, some DIALOGUE, as well as DROID DIALOGUE and dogfighting. The Falcon blows up 6 ENEMY SHIPS.

    SC 21 EXT SPACE

    The MILLENNIUM FALCON races out of the REDOUBT CLUSTER and jumps into HYPERSPACE.

    SC 22 EXT SPACE

    Moving away from us, the Falcon comes out of Hyperspace and approaches CSILLA.

    SC 23 EXT CSILLA-LANDING PLATFORM-DAY

    THREE CHISS, two MALES with silver hair, one FEMALE with long, jet back hair in a ponytail, stand GUARD. The Falcon lands and the GUARDS approach the ship, weapons drawn.

    The MAIN DOOR of the
    Falcon opens, the ramp comes down. REY, her DROIDS, and the OTHERS come down, REY raising a WHITE FLAG with no symbol.

    The CHISS lower their weapons.


    The LEADER, the FEMALE CHISS with the JET BLACK HAIR, approaches them and and speaks in an ALIEN TONGUE.

    REY turns to C-3PO.

    REY: 3PO, what is she saying?

    C-3PO: Well, M'Lady, she is speaking in a very rare language to our galaxy, known as Sy Bisti, but a rough translation, and the most accurate I can come up with, is "What the hell is your business here, alien scum?!"

    REY: Tell her that I seek an audience with the Chiss Ascendancy.

    C-3PO: (Speaks in Sy Bisti.)

    All the Chiss burst out laughing, then they point their weapons at the GROUP, and the LEADER speaks very roughly to them, jostling REY very roughly with her big GUN. The REBEL GROUP all raise their hands in the air who can, including C-3PO.

    The CHISS LEADER speaks angrily, furiously and rapidly in Sy Bisti, gesturing wildly in the air with her GUN, then indicates REY and the others to turn around.

    They all do, and the CHISS LEADER jams her GUN into REY'S back.

    The GROUP starts walking forward, driven on by the THREE CHISS GUARDS.

    SC 24 INT. JAILHOUSE-CSILLA-NIGHT

    The WHOLE GROUP, DROIDS not included, are in the CLOTHES they came with, now grungy and sweaty.

    C-3PO: Unless my internal chronometer is malfunctioning, We've been here for two days! The re-runs of shows on TV just repeat endlessly! Will this never end?

    D-O:
    Picking up transmission from local computers network. Alien hostilities toward us are rising. We are slated for execution and meltdown in two days.

    C-3PO: Oh, dear, meltdown! This is madness!

    REY: Quiet, you two. I'm thinking.
    ,
    If there is any way for D-O to visually indicate he intends to now keep silence, he exhibits it. C-3PO, too, now keeps silence. R2 is sleeping. BB-8 is catatonic from shock.

    INTO THE ROOM walks a blue-skinned CHISS GUARD to give them their SUPPER of RATIONS AND WATER, and THIN, DISGUSTING-LOOKING, FILMY SOUP.

    REY: Threepio, tell him I must speak to the Chiss Ascendency now or face the consequences.

    C-3PO: But Mistress Skywalker-Solo, we are outmatched and outgunned (he says with a tone of question or inquiry).

    REY:
    Just tell him, 3PO.

    C-3PO tells the CHISS GUARD something in Sy Bisti and the GUARD roars with LAUGHTER.

    Suddenly, the JAIL CELL doors come off at the hinges and fall onto the floor, and REY, BEN, FINN and ROSE quickly dispatch the GUARD, as well as all of the other GUARDS who race in at the noise, blasters drawn, in hand-to-hand combat. Then the FOUR of them DISARM and TIE UP the GUARDS, after BEN Force-crushes the Security CAMS.

    BEN: Let's move.

    They all, DROIDS included, slip out the door left WIDE OPEN by the GUARDS, pick up their weapons just outside the CELL BLOCK, in a CAGE
    REY COMPLETELY DISSASSEMBLES with the FORCE, go up THREE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS quickly and out a BIG DOOR REY opens with the FORCE.


    SC 25 EXT CSILLA-NIGHT

    The group escapes into the night.

    LANDO: Where to, now, M'Lady?

    REY: The Force will guide us, as it always has.

    SC 26 EXT CSILLA-TEMPORARY ENCAMPMENT-WOODS-DAY

    C-3PO: Oh, I am in bad need of an oil bath! We've been wandering about this planet aimlessly for three days! Will this never end?

    BEN: Don't worry, my golden friend, it only seems aimless. I sense circumstances will soon change in our favor.

    SC 27 EXT CSILLA-WOODS-SUNSET

    The GROUP walk single file to hide their numbers.

    SUDDENLY screaming, wailing and a high pitched girlish voice is heard in the distance.

    BEN: 3PO, what is that girl's voice saying?

    C-3PO: A lot of foul Chiss swear words, Sir, and shouts of 'Let me go' and 'my parents will find me!'

    Rey looks at Ben.

    BEN: You guys stay here. This little girl is in need of our help. My wife and I will handle this.

    SC 28 EXT CSILLA-SUNSET-CLEARING-SUNSET

    FOUR THUGS roughly manhandle a 10 year old Chiss girl in a blue and green dress that looks filthy and unwashed. One of the THUGS shouts at her in Sy Bisti and smacks her across the mouth hard, leaving a bruise. She shuts up. Another THUG begins to speak but can't because he is CHOKING. His hand goes to his throat, but his windpipes are soon crushed and he collapses to the earth. Just then, as the other three look around in fear, a gun flies out of another's hand and turns toward him and SHOOTS him in the face. He falls over, dead. As the other two begin shouting at the top if their lungs and begin randomly firing in every direction, REY and BEN come out from behind the dense trees and foliage and quickly dispatch the remaining two THUGS. The GIRL'S eyes go WIDE in SHOCK and DISBELIEF.

    Just then the GIRL SCREAMS, turns around and begins to TAKE OFF RUNNING in the other direction, but she is frozen MID-STRIDE, as BEN holds out his hand.

    But she continues to scream at the TOP OF HER LUNGS.

    BEN: 3-PO, come here!

    C-3PO comes out of the woods.


    BEN: Tell this frightened young girl that we mean her no harm and that we want to help her find her parents.

    3PO shouts out to the girl in Sy Bisti sternly.

    She stops screaming. BEN lowers his hand. She walks back to the GROUP. All the members, LANDO, ROSE, FINN, ARTOO, CHEWBACCA, BB-8 and D-O, have rejoined REY, BEN and THREEPIO in the CLEARING.


    REY: 3PO, ask this girl who her parents are, and who she is.

    C-3PO: (Speaks to the girl in soft tones in Sy Bisti.)

    GIRL: I am fluent in Basic, so there is no need for your talkdroid. I am Princess Ih'rth'rew'trodora, of the Fifth House of the Css Ascendancy. A crime syndycate, Crimson Dawn, hired those thugs to kidnap me to use me as a bartering chip to blackmail the Royal Family. Sorry for my fear, but I believed you to be Sith Warriors sent by some rival faction who had other interests, and I did the only thing my instinct told me to do-try to run.

    A look of joy dawns on each member of the group's face, save the DROIDS who nevertheless show their excitement in other ways.

    BEN: Can you take us to the Ascendancy? We would be very grateful, and you would be a real help to us.

    THREWDORA: Yes, I paid attention to every mile those ruffians took me. It is a long way off. I hope you brought camping gear.

    BEN: It's in the Wookiee's pack.

    THREWDORA:
    I've never seen an actual Wookiee before, or a BB unit, only in television, the Holonet or in Holovids, or other visual data storage units. What are your names?

    BEN: Ben Solo-Skywalker, at your service, M'Lady.

    REY: Rey Skywalker-Solo.

    CHEWIE: (Barks.)

    BEN: That's Chewie.

    THREWDORA:
    He introduced himself as 'Chewbacca'. 'Chewie' must be his nickname. I am also fluent in Speakwook, know a lot of binary, and am fluent in many other languages and dialects. The education of a Princess of the Fifth House of the Css Ascendancy is intense, and I also know many fighting arts and am good with a blaster and a staff.

    R2-D2: (Beeps)

    BB-8: (Beeps)

    THREWDORA: Oh (giggles, covering mouth) R2-D2 and BB-8. Nice to meet you.

    D-O: D-O, M'Lady.

    C-3PO:
    I am See-Threepio, Human Cyborg Relations, M'Lady.

    ROSE: Rose Tico, M'Lady.

    FINN:
    Finn Redeemed, M'Lady, formerly First Order Stormtrooper FN-2187, at your service.

    LANDO:
    Lando Calarissean, Little Lady. (Bows)

    THREWDORA: (Curtsies) It is a pleasure to make all of your acquaintances. Now, if you will all follow me, we'll find our way to the Fifth House of Css, but don't expect to get there anytime soon. We have a rather long journey ahead of us.

    BEN: Then let's get going. We haven't a moment to lose. And thank you, you've been most kind.

    SC 29 EXT. CSSILLA-WIDE PLAINS AND ROLLING HILLS-MIDDAY

    The PARTY OF ELEVEN continues on their trek.

    SC 30 EXT. CSSILLA-MOUNTAIN PASS-MORNING

    Dressed in furs, save the DROIDS, the PARTY continues, trudging through the DEEP SNOW.


    SC 31 EXT SWAMP-CSILLA-EVENING

    The PARTY is CAMPED out.


    C-3PO: Lady Rey, if I may venture an opinion, Chewbacca and Princess Ih'rth'rew'trodora have been gone gathering firewood for far too long. I'm starting to become concerned.

    BEN: I agree. I sense that they may be in grave danger. Finn, Rose, come with us.

    ROSE AND FINN:
    Yes, Master Ben.

    SC 32 EXT CSILLA-SWAMP-NIGHT

    CHEWIE and THREWDORA are in the HUGE TENTACLES of a MASSIVE GREEN-SKINNED SWAMP MONSTER with YELLOW SPOTS and MANY EYE-STALKS, about to be DEVOURED by it, when REY, BEN, FINN and ROSE come to the RESCUE, attempting to SLICE AND SKEWER the BEAST with their LIGHTSABERS, but it only serves to DISTRACT the BEAST from EATING its TWO VICTIMS.

    BEN and REY leap onto the top of the CREATURE, slicing off EYESTALK AFTER EYESTALK. The CREATURE ROARS in PAIN and ANGUISH, bus still holds TIGHT to CHEWIE and the GIRL, and HASTENS TO FINISH ITS MEAL. FINN and ROSE leap atop the BEAST and ATTEMPT to SLICE OFF the TENTACLES holding its TWO VICTIMS but they are TOO THICK. The GIRL and CHEWIE continue to SCREAM. Just then, FINN creates a FORCE BUBBLE around HIMSELF and LEAPS INTO the CREATURES GAPING MAW ahead of THREWDORA AND CHEWBACCA. Several SECONDS later the FORCE BUBBLE EXPANDS beyond the BOUNDS of the SWAMP BEAST'S SKIN, making the BEAST EXPLODE in A GORY GOOEY MESS. The JEDI, THREWDORA and CHEWIE fall to the earth, and BEN and REY free them of the MASIVE TENTACLES. THREWDORA and CHEWBACCA cough from being CONSTRICTED and they GASP FOR AIR.

    BEN: (Pats FINN on the back.) Good job, Finn. You've earned your right to be my Padawan, as you have been begging me for months now. Will you accept?

    FINN: You can't imagine the horrors I discovered inside that thing, Ben. I won't be able to sleep well for WEEKS now! (Bows and kneels to Ben): I accept, and submit to your teaching and your training, Master Solo-Skywalker.

    BEN: Your hair's cut too short to make a braid. I'll have to fix you with a clip-on.

    FINN:
    I've always wanted one of those! Yes!! Alright, dear Rose, my wife, soon I'll be a Knight like you. Just wait and see!

    ROSE: I believe in you, husband.

    SC 33 EXT CSILLA-BEACH COAST-DAY

    A rickety but big BOAT is tied up to a WOODEN DOCK.

    THREWDORA: All aboard. I was hoping and praying the boat they left here hadn't been taken yet. Now we have to cross this huge lake.

    FINN: (Looks) Where's the other side? I only see water.

    THREWDORA: It took three days for the five of us to cross this lake. We had better pray for no gales, or we could be capsized really quick.

    FINN'S eyes close and he bows his head. CHEWIE, REY and BEN and ROSE follow suit. LANDO crosses his arms.

    After they raise their heads and open their eyes, they all board the BOAT.

    SC 34 EXT CSILLA-LAKE-OPEN WATER-DAY

    As the CREW OF THE BOAT fishes for FOOD, SOME TRANSPARENT, CRYSTAL DOLPHINS leap AHEAD beside the BOAT. A HUGE EXOTIC BIRD OF PREY swoops down, IGNORING THE CREW OF THE BOAT, and snatches away ONE OF THE CRYSTAL DOLPHINS, who makes a PITIFUL WAILING SOUND as it is CARRIED up.

    SC 35-EXT CSILLA-GRASSY LAKESHORE-DAY


    The BOAT is SCUTTLED upon the OPPOSITE SHORE of the LAKE. The CREW disembark. They CONTINUE their journey without a word.

    SC 36-CSILLA-BIG CITY-DAY


    No one DARES to touch any of the PARTY OF ELEVEN because they are with their PRINCESS, under HER PROTECTION, and ALL are GRATEFUL to SEE HER ALIVE.

    SC 37 EXT-PALACE OF THE FIFTH HOUSE OF THE CSS ASCENDANCY-DAY


    The PALACE is GRAND, with ORNATE MARKINGS all over it, and a HUGE SPIRE, POINTING to the DIRECTION STAR OF THE CSS.

    [Author's Note: I have not read the Thrawn Ascendancy series. I tried doing research on the CSS Ascendancy but could not find the details I was looking for on Wookieepedia. If any or all of these details are contradictory to establicshed canonical Css Culture or practice, it can be retconned; should be an easy to tricky fix but this story is malleable-it bends to canon except in the case of Ben not dying at the end of Episode 9 because his second sacrifice after his first death is unneccessary and ends the Skywalker Line and bereaves Rey needlessly of a future love interest and prevents the birth of Luke and Sara, which you can meet in my Star wars 13-15 Scripts already posted here, all three, in tf.n fan fiction-BLSK"study3600"V}

    SC 38 INT-PALACE OF THE FIFTH HOUSE OF THE CSS ASCENDANCY

    The LEADERS of the FIFTH HOUSE sit in the ROYAL AUDIENCE CHAMBER ARRAYED in ROYAL COLORS, as the PARTY OF ELEVEN are granted AN AUDIENCE.

    CSS LEADER: There is no reward great enough to repay you for saving my daughter's life not once, but twice. Also, I am quite aware that since you are Leaders yourselves with positions of Authority in the New Republic, you are already each one of you rich beyond imagination. Lady Rey, you are permitted to speak.

    REY: Tell me the weakness of Mi'th'raw'nuruodo, your Majesty.

    CSS ASCENDANCY LEADER: It is the weakness of our whole species. Our inability to sense the Force, deception or betrayal.

    REY: Do you approve of Thrawn controlling the Empire?

    LEADER: No, we do not.

    REY: Can Thrawn be stopped?

    LEADER: It is certain he can and must be stopped. He is mad with power. There is something you must know. Something we know of because of our connection to Thrawn that the entire New Republic is quite unaware of, but we feel it would help your cause tremendously if we told you.

    BEN: Permission to speak, your Majesty.

    LEADER: Granted, Master Ben.

    BEN: What is this intelligence you speak of?

    LEADER: It concerns the Clone Army manning Mi'th'raw'nuruodo's massive Katana Fleet. They are generated from a cloning facility from a planet in the Obra Skai System called Wayland. If you are to crush Thrawn's war effort, there you must strike. But beware! It is guarded by two Dark Jedi, the Master currrently aboard Thrawn's ship, The Chimera, and we do not know the whereabouts of his apprentice, the clone of one now deceased Jedi Master, Luke Skywalker. But his Master, Joruus C'baoth is far more dangerous. The facility is one thing. The two Dark Jedi stay in a nearby mountain fortress. One thing is certain. If these two Dark Jedi are not also dispatched and also the Facility, These two dangerous men will surely take over the Empire after Thrawn dies, when he is defeated.

    REY: And how will we defeat Thrawn himself.

    LEADER: (Smiles) That I do not know. He may have to be defeated militarily by your Rebel Fleet. Your guess is as good as mine. But your top priority is Wayland.

    BEN: Then to Wayland we will go. We could use a transport to quickly get back to our ship.

    LEADER: We will give you our swiftest air car, which should be big enough for the ten of you with plenty of breathing room. Our scouts have already located your starship and have programmed the car with its coordinates. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    REY: Thank you for your kindness, we leave in peace. (bows, as do all the other Jedi. The others also do obeisance.)

    Nearby, C-3PO is coming out of an oil bath and we can see the other DROIDS are all shiny and BUFFED UP.

    SC 39 CSILLA -WOODS- MIDDAY

    The SPEEDER races through the CSILLAN WOOD.

    SC 40 EXT CSILLA-MILLENNIUM FALCON PARKING AREA-DAY


    A FIGURE IN A BLACK ROBE awaits their arrival, as well as a SMALL ARMY of VERY ANGRY CHISS. THE SPEEDER PARKS WELL AWAY FROM them. The CREW disembarks.

    LUUKE: (In a loud, booming, Force Amplified Voice) You are all walking dead persons, every last one of you. My spy network has ferreted out your exact location and we have been awaiting your arrival with eager anticipation. (Speaks loudly in Sy Bisti, with Subtitle) WRONGED CITIZENS OF CSILLA, ATTACK!

    CHEWBACCA and LANDO start blasting away with BOWCASTER and BLASTER RIFLE, flanking the FOUR JEDI to the LEFT AND RIGHT, with the DROIDS STILL ON BOARD THE SPEEDER. THE JEDI come in SABERS SWINGING, PIERCING, DISMEMBERING and CHOPPING the ANGRY CHISS as CHISS FEMALES AND MALES go down by GUN AND BY SWORD one by one. Soon there are no enemies left standing, save LU'UKE, in the distance.

    LUUKE claps loudly and slowly THREE TIMES.


    LU'UKE: Well, done. I expected no less. But not even the four of you Jedi are any match for my inestimable power. Lando and Chewbacca, stay out of this affair for your own good. This is strictly Jedi business, and I have no beef with either of you.

    CHEWIE and LANDO go back to the SPEEDER. BEN and REY shed their OUTER ROBES. ROSE and the OTHER THREE JEDI get into FIGHTING STANCE.


    LUUKE: Oh, I'm going to so enjoy bleeding each of your sabers and making all four of them mine.

    DUEL OF THE FATES music BLENDED with DUEL of the HEROES music swells as THE DARK JEDI ASSAULTS the PADAWAN, KNIGHT and TWO MASTERS.

    Then, SUDDENLY, a SECOND BLADE EMITS from LUUKE'S RED LASER SWORD, making it into an ANGLE SWORD, which he wields expertly, and is flexible, able to be adjusted to ANY ANGLE, INCLUDING STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN AND HORIZONTAL. LUUKE uses these ABILITIES to GREAT EFFECT.


    [​IMG]

    ROSE'S PINK BLADE, FINN'S BLUE BLADE, BEN'S ORANGE CROSSGUARDS BLADE, and REY'S BLUE BLADE are NO MATCH for the CONSTANTLY SHIFTING AND CHANGING ANGLES of LU'UKE'S RED BLADES, which from TIME TO TIME he also pulls apart to reveal a CHAIN BETWEEN THEM and EXPERTLY WIELDS THEM like NUNCHUCKS. JUST as THE FOUR JEDI are about to be COMPLETLY OVERPOWERED and SLAIN, A JEDI STARFIGHTER SUDDENLY LANDS BETWEEN LU'UKE and the OTHER JEDI. The TOP POPS open and out like a BLAZE OF GLORY, AHSOKA TANO, her left hand a BRIGHT SHINING LIGHT BLUE CRYSTALLINE MASTERWORK, somersaults five times forward in the air while unclippping both of her LIGHTSABERS from her UTILITY BELT WITH THE FORCE, and LANDS on her FEET. She CROUCHES menacingly, giving LU'UKE a STERN look then IGNITES BOTH PURE WHITE SWORDS SIMULTANEOUSLY.

    TANO: You're gonna pay for sending all of those innocent Chiss to their deaths, phoney-baloney Lukie!



    [​IMG]

    SC 41 INT SPEEDER-CSILLA-DAY


    Artoo-Detoo BEEPS excitedly to see Ahsoka again.

    SC 42 EXT-MILLENNIUM FALCON LANDING SITE-DAY

    TANO: If you want to get to my friends you'll have to get through me first!

    LUUKE: (Loudly) How ever did you find your friends?!

    TANO: Easy. Had they not come to Csilla through the Redoubt cluster, I never would have known of their mission, for I had just concluded business there.

    LUUKE: (Laughs evilly) What 'business'?

    TANO: That's none of yours. And when I learned you were after my friends through monitoring your spy network, I immediately sniffed out the trail and came as soon as I could to help. Now I'm gonna defend these wonderful people, and you are so going to die.

    LUUKE: We'll see. We are pretty evenly matched. But I feel I have a slight edge over your skills, both with saber and Force ability. You may be the one to die today, then I will easily slay your friends and I will have SIX sabers to bleed.

    TANO: You will bleed these sabers when Ashla is no longer a God. And that will NEVER happen.

    LUUKE: I don't believe in your God. Your sad devotion to faith in ANY God makes you weaker than me morally. It shall be easy to defeat such an one as yourself. Prepare to die finally. I will end your long and miserable life, Lady Tano.

    SUDDENLY with a FURY rivalling PALPATINE HIMSELF, Lu'uke twists in the air with his red blade facing in front of him, shouting an evil SITH SCREAM that sounds AWFUL and coming at AHSOKA like a MISSILE.

    WHITE CLASHES TERRIFICALLY with RED with WHITE WITH RED as AHSOKA and LU'UKE DUEL WIELD in UNISON, the CHAIN connecting saber to saber, stretching LONG ENOUGH to allow BOTH COMBATANTS to FULL ON DUEL WIELD. TIT FOR TAT, BLOW for BLOW, AHSOKA clearly is shown to have an advantage, but only a SLIGHT one. It is a STALEMATE. While LU'UKE is distracted the FOUR JEDI, CHEWBACCA, LANDO and the FOUR DROIDS board the FALCON, and, as TANO nods in approval, TAKES OFF into the GREEN SKY of CSILLA. Then Ahsoka slightly gestures with her right PINKIE finger, the JEDI STARFIGHTER'S TOP POPS OPEN, she BACKWARD SOMERSAULTS FIVE TIMES and lands in the COCKPIT, on HER SEAT, and, ZOOMS OFF.

    SC 43 EXT SPACE

    The FALCON and the JEDI STARFIGHTER move away from CSILLA and JUMP TOGETHER into HYPERSPACE.

    SC 44 EXT SPACE

    The Chimera hovers menacingly over the planet UKIO.

    SC 45 INT-CHIMERA-SPACE

    {Author's note: For the following sequence I give credit to Timothy Zahn and Dark Horse Comics, however the whole movie is not The Last Command completely, only borrows intentionally a few scenes, sequences and ideas from it, but is nearly 100% original in all other respects. Otherwise the story of Thrawn cold not be told properly on the Big Screen) Episode 10 is almost entirely NOTHING like Heir to the Empire except for one scene, all the rest 100% original for example. And Episode 11 will probably bear absolutely no resemblance to Dark Force Rising, except in the introduction of the Nog'hri to Rey on Hongrir (sp?) and one of the final battle sequences location being at Bilbringi Shipyards (with different, wholly different, action sequences and a fresh new feel.) My goal was to retell the Thrawn story in a dynamic way with Rey, Ben and Finn and the rest instead of the usual Han Luke and Leia tropes, who are, last I checked, all dead by now. -BLSKV}

    GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN SITS in his SEAT, FINGERS STEEPLED. An Imperial LIEUTENANT walks up to THRAWN and SALUTES.



    THRAWN: At ease. Report.

    LIEUTENANT: All systems show battle-ready, Admiral. The task force is beginning to check in.

    THRAWN: Very good, Lieutenant. Inform me when all have done so, Captain Palleon.

    PALLEON: Sir?

    THRAWN: Begin the countdown.

    PALLEON: Yes, sir.

    PALLEON: (CONT'D) Countdown, transmit your marks. Bellacose, three minutes.

    HOLOGRAM: (V.O.) Acknowledged.

    PALLEON: Relentless, 4.5 minutes.

    HOLOGRAM: (V.O.) Acknowledged.

    PALLEON: Adjudicator, 6 minutes.

    HOLOGRAM: (V.O.) We are ready, Chimera.

    THRAWN: The operation appears to be moving along smoothly. The Stormhawk reports that the small freighters launched on time with tow cables functioning properly and we've just intercepted an emergency call from the Andor system.

    PALLEON: That would be the Bellacose and its task force. Any response, sir?

    THRAWN: The Rebel Base at Ord Padron responded. It should be interesting to see how much help they send..

    LIEUTENANT: We intercepted a distress signal from Filve, Admiral. Ord Padron again responding.

    THRAWN: Good! Seven minutes, I think, and we will be able to move...leaving our true target for the pluck. Now we had better confirm that our exalted Jedi Master is ready and willing to do his part.

    PALLEON: I'll go, sir.

    THRAWN: Thank you, Captain.

    SC 46 INT ART GALLERY-CHIMERA-SPACE

    JORUUS C'BAOTH sits cross-legged, hands on knees, meditating and admiring changing HOLOGRAPHIC ART DISPLAYS. CAPTAIN PALLEON strides in confidently behind him.

    C'BAOTH: CAPTAIN PALLEON! I've been waiting for you. I take it Grand Admiral Mi'th'raw'nuruduodo is finally ready.

    PALLEON: Almost. We want to clear out Ord Padron as much as possible before we move.

    The DARK JEDI crosses his arms.

    C'BAOTH: He will not always be right.

    PALLEON:
    You read my mind. Do you not understand the concept of privacy?!

    C'BAOTH: I am the Empire, Captain. Your thoughts are part of your service to me.

    PALLEON: My service is to Grand admiral Thrawn.

    C'BAOTH: You may believe that if you wish.

    PALLEON: We should put up a tactical display, Master C'baoth.

    C'BAOTH: (Raises a hand) As you wish.

    A tactical display appears. The positions of the Chimera and the Katana Fleet are on display.

    PALLEON: As we can see, the Katana Fleet dreadnoughts of our task force cover our outer and inner defense positions, and The Stormhawk only serves as a backstop to the Chimera from the right side, while the Chimera is driving toward high orbit above the sunset equator, as other ships are dropping through the brief gaps ground control is opening for them in Ukio's Energy Shield, the few invisible cloaked ships that are being towed are not to be suspected.

    C'BAOTH: Invisible only to those without eyes to see them, Captain.

    PALLEON: So now you can see the ships' insides, can you? How Jedi skills grow!

    C'BAOTH: (With utter disdain) I can see the men inside your precious cloaked shields. I can hear their thoughts and guide their minds. What does the metal itself matter?

    PALLEON: They'll be dropping the tow cables as soon as they are inside the shield. Are you ready?

    C'BAOTH: (In an arrogant tone) I await the Grand Admiral's Command.

    A doorbell rings that sounds almost like the one in Star Trek: The Next Generation in sound and in tone.

    THRAWN: (V.O.) Captain Palleon.

    PALLEON: We're ready, Admiral.

    THRAWN: Standby..Tow cables detracking now. Confirm that they are beneath the planetary shield. Be absolutely certain, Jedi Master. If you are wrong-

    C'BAOTH: (Thunders) I am NOT wrong, Grand Admiral Thrawn (practically spits the name out)! I will do my part in this battle! Concern yourself with yours.

    SC 47 EXT UKIO-DAY


    The Chimera hovers as a transmission to the planet is heard:

    THRAWN: (V.O.)This is the Imperial Star Destroyer Chimera. I declare the Ukia System is once again under the mandate of Imperial Law and the protection of Imperial Forces. You will lower your shields, recall all vehicles unto their bases and prepare for an orderly transfer of command. If you fail to respond, I will have to presume that you mean to resist the Empire. In that extremity I will have no choice but to open hostilities.

    SC 48 INT CHIMERA-BRIDGE-CLOSE-UP OF THRAWN'S FACE-SPACE

    V.O.: They are sending another request for assistance, even more panicked than the last.

    THRAWN:
    I'm certain the next one will be even more so. Prepare for firing sequence one, Master C'baoth.

    SC 49 INT STAR ROOM-CHIMERA-SPACE

    As C'BAOTH meditates, he responds to THRAWN.

    C'BAOTH: The cruisers are ready, Grand Admiral Thrawn, as am I.

    THRAWN: Be sure that you are. Unless the thing is absolutely perfect, the entire show will be worse than useless. Turbolaser battery, standby, firing sequence on on my mark....3....2...1..FIRE!

    SC 50 EXT UKIO-DAY


    The planet is fired upon by a salvo from the turbolaser blasts of the Chimera. People on the surface run in a panic, many die and much sand is turned into glass, many of their buildings and other structures are destroyed.

    SC 51 EXT UKIO-POV OF THE CLOAKED SHIPS INTERCUT WITH POV OF THE UKIANS-DAY

    It looks like the Chimera is firing on the planet through their defense shield from the point of view of the Ukians. PULL back to the point of view of just above the CLOAKED ships to show that this is an optical illusion, and as the Chimera's turbolaser batteries strike the ENERGY SHIELD, the towed CLOAKED VESSELS in turn and at the EXACT SAME time, fire upon the planet below, giving the APPEARANCE that the EMPIRE has developed an ENERGY SHIELD-PIERCING WEAPON.

    SC 52 INT UKIO-SHELTERS

    We see children being held by their mothers, husbands embracing wives in shelters. There is much weeping and mourning.

    SC 53 INT CHIMERA-BRIDGE-SPACE

    Grand Admiral Thrawn sits on his chair, steepling his fingers.

    THRAWN: Prepare firing sequence three, Master C'baoth.

    C'BAOTH:
    (V.O.) Cruisers are ready.

    THRAWN: Turbolaser battery three, standy, firing sequence three on my mark, 3....2....1...FIRE!

    SC 54 EXT UKIO-DAY

    The third sequence of TURBOLASER BLASTS are even MORE DEVASTATING than the FIRST and the SECOND, the CARNAGE EXCEEDING ANYTHING that has GONE BEFORE. People DESPERATELY try to find ANY shelter they POSSIBLY can. The TURBOLASERS stop.

    MAN: (V.O.) We would ask you to cease your bombardment of Ukio and we will discuss your terms of surrender.

    THRAWN: (V.O.) My terms are simple. You will lower your planetary shield and permit my forces to land. Any fighting vehicles will be turned over to Imperial control. And though you will, of course, be ultimately answerable to the Empire, your political, religious, and social systems will remain under your control, provided your people behave themselves, of course.

    MAN: (V.O.) There will be no wartime taxes levied, no forced conscription of our youth?

    SC 55 INT CHIMERA-BRIDGE-SPACE

    Thrawn sits with steepled fingers.

    THRAWN: No to your second question, a qualified 'no' to your first. As you are obviously aware, most Imperial worlds are currently under war status taxation level. However, there are exceptions. And it is likely that your share of the war effort will come directly from your extensive food production and processing facilities.

    MAN: (V.O.) We will lower the planetary shields, Chimera, as a gesture of good faith. But before we lower our shields, we shall require guarantees regarding the safety of the Ukian people and our land.

    THRAWN:
    Certainly.

    SC 56 EXT SPACE

    The PLANETARY SHIELD LOWERS. Imperial SHIPS start to LAND immediately.

    SC 57 INT MILLENNIUM FALCON-SPACE


    REY and BEN sit before a MINI HOLOGRAPHIC JEDI COUNCIL MEETING, where ALL TEN OTHER MEMBERS are around a miniature HOLOGRAPHIC circle in the SHIP's HOLD.

    JEDI GRAND MASTER KLON: You must certainly go straight to Wayland. I forsee you will greatly need Lady Tano's assistance.

    REY: I am concerned about my pregnancy. I am carrying a son. Ben and I will name him Luke. As you know, we were married on Naboo six months ago and we conceived him on our wedding night. There is a chance the master of that Luke clone who tried to kill us three times and that we escaped from three times, all due to the assistance of other, more powerful Jedi stepping in to intervene, there is a chance that that Dark Jedi Master might seek to influence the mind of our unborn child.

    KLON: Then it is vital Lady Tano travel with you all the way to Wayland. Her pure spirit will be like a shield of protection from the Dark Lord's influence.

    JEDI GRAND MASTER LEERSA: We have just received word that both the Ord Padron and Ukia Systems have fallen simultaneously while the Filve System is even now under heavy attack.

    REY: Rest assured that our thoughts and our prayers go with them.

    KLON: Meanwhile, there is good news. Thousands of new Jedi Temples and Hundreds of new Rebel Bases are now under construction. And more and more men women and children are entering them, asking to be trained as Jedi. To the tune of thousands. All right under Thrawn's nose, Ben!

    BEN: This is such good news! Truly the Rise of the Jedi.

    LEERSA: It is largely due to the mass persecution yet relative leniency of this New Empire that we are seeing such success! The days of chaincodes and oppressive tyranny is over. If I didn't know better, I'd say that Thrawn is turning out to be quite the benevolent dictator. But of course, I know better. He must be stopped or this will not last forever.

    REY: Agreed.

    KLON: This emergency session of the Jedi Council is hereby adjourned. May the Force be with us all.

    One by one, every hologram within the hologram fades, save KLON, GORNEE and GRAND MASTER JIGFRA, who are actually on FARSHA IV, in the COUNCIL CHAMBER. Then they fade as well, from the MILLENNIUM FALCON'S GAME TABLE, where the meeting was HELD.

    SC 58 EXT SPACE AROUND FILVE

    A HUGE SPACE BATTLE ensues between IMPERIAL FORCES and REBEL SHIPS trying to PROTECT a MASS EVACUATION of FILVE.

    SC 59 INT-X-WING 1-COCKPIT-SPACE

    PILOT 1:
    Red Group, Gold Group, cover me, we're taking out this Dreadnought. Protect the Bombers at all costs. Bombers, start your run NOW!

    SC 60 EXT SPACE


    A Resistance Bomber loses ALL support as BOTH SQUADS OF X and B-WINGS surrounding it are WIPED out by a HORNET'S NEST OF TIE SPECIALS. THEN they turn on to the BOMBERS and ALL THREE OF THE BOMBERS EXPLODE IN MASSIVE CONFLAGERATIONS.

    THEN the TIE SPECIALS start ATTACKING the X and A and Y-WING SQUADRONS PROTECTING ALL THE EVACUATION SHIPS and MEDICAL FRIGATES.

    SUDDENLY THREE MORE X-WING SQUADRONS and TEN JEDI STARFIGHTERS join the fray and ALL spend nearly FIVE MINUTES putting up a VERY GOOD FIGHT, but the TIE SPECIALS COUPLED with DEADLY TURBOLASER BLASTS FROM the KATANA DREADNOUGHT make SPACE DUST out of all the RESISTANCE DEFENDERS, then the TIE SPECIALS SWARM the MEDICAL FRIGATES.


    SC 61 INT MEDICAL FRIGATE ONE-SPACE


    Bacta tanks and Hospital Beds and Various Models of Medical Droids, Doctors, Nurses and Attendees abound everywhere, as do the WOUNDED, SICK and DYING. SUDDENLY EXPLOSIONS incinerate ALL OF IT.

    SC 62 EXT MEDICAL FRIGATE ONE-SPACE

    The FRIGATE EXPLODES, BUSTING IN PIECES.

    [​IMG]


    SCENE 63 EXT SPACE

    The OTHER THREE MEDICAL FRIGATES BLOW APART, and the TIE SPECIALS start to pick off the defenses SURROUNDING the EVAC SHIPS.

    ONCE the defenses are weakened sufficiently, BLASTS from the DREADNOUGHT as it CONTINUES to PUMMEL the PLANET below, also START to PICK OFF the EVAC SHIPS ONE BY ONE until there are ZERO LEFT.

    The REMAINING REBEL SHIPS attempt to FLEE but are ROUTED and VANQUISHED by the TIES and the DREADNOUGHT.

    SC 64 INT DREADNOUGHT RELENTLESS-BRIDGE-SPACE

    A CLONE stands at attention before a LARGER THAN LIFE HOLOGRAM of GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN.

    CLONE COMMANDER COMPGARN: The Rebels at Filve put up a helluva fight, Sir, but we have vanquished them completely.

    THRAWN: Very good, Commander Compgarn. My fleet at Naboo report that the Rebels and Native Naboo are putting up an extremely good fight, and require immediate assistance. Set your course.

    COMPGARN: Right away, Admiral.

    SC 65 EXT SPACE

    The DREADNOUGHT RELENTLESS and ALL OTHER IMPERIAL SHIPS AND FIGHTERS jump together into HYPERSPACE.

    SC 66 SPACE AROUND NABOO

    The NABOO, BOTH the NEWLY CONCEIVED OF NATIVE GUNGAN STARFIGHTERS and the BRIGHT YELLOW NABOO FIGHTERS AND SILVER SHAPELY NABOO MAN-OF -WAR DREADNOUGHTS AND ROYAL BLUE CURVY NABOO DESTROYERS are keeping the IMPERIAL DREADNOUGHT, STAR DESTROYERS and CRUISERS and TIES at bay, away from the PLANET, to avoid ANY possibility of an AERIAL BOMBARDMENT.

    [​IMG]

    SC 67 INT GUNGAN STARFIGHTER 1-COCKPIT


    GUNGAN PILOT 1: Activaten da bombad Bo-Ganya!

    From a CENTRAL ship, A GIANT FORCE FIELD ACTIVATES and SURROUNDS EVERY GUNGAN SHIP in their SQUAD.


    The GUNGAN SQUAD PLOWS FOWARD, the SHIELD decimating ENTIRE SQUADRONS OF TIES. They head STRAIGHT for THE IMPERIAL DREADNOUGHT THE FULMINATRIX II

    THE FORCE SHIELD GOES STRAIGHT IN ONE SIDE AND OUT THE OTHER OF THE DREADNOUGHT, LEAVING A GAPING HOLE the size of a CITY IN ITS MIDDLE SECTION. The DREADNOUGHT goes up in a BALL OF FLAME.

    A SECOND GUNGAN SQUADRON fights furiously with TIE SPECIALS and TIE INTERCEPTORS. The Gungans have the CLEAR ADVANTAGE over them.

    SC 68 INT. NABOO STARFIGHTER 1-COCKPIT

    RIC OLLIE:
    Yahooo! Let's regroup, Royal Squadron, and show these Imps what we're made of!

    SC 69 EXT SPACE


    Just then the RELENTLESS and MANY OTHER IMPERIAL SHIPS AND FIGHTERS jump OUT OF HYPERSPACE.

    SC 70 INT RELENTLESS-BRIDGE

    As CLONE COMMANDER COMPGARN studies HOLOS of what he missed in the LOCAL BATTLE from different ANGLES, he gets a flash of light in his EYES, and says, 'AHA!'

    SC 71 EXT SPACE

    As the FIRST GUNGAN SQUADRON START UP THEIR SHIELD and PREPARE to TAKE OUT the RELENTLESS as well, A TROOP of DARKTROOPERS ZOOM THROUGH SPACE, PENETRATING THE SHIELD, TOO SWIFT for the GUNGAN STARFIGHTERS TO TAKE OUT while they are maintaining SHIELD STASIS.
    The DARKTROOPERS DESTROY the SHIP GENERATING the SHIELD, which COLLAPSES like A GIANT SPACE UMBRELLA. Then the GUNGANS destroy the DARKTROOPERS with their FIGHTERS' LASERS, but while they are distracted, the MUCH MORE SEASONED TIE SPECIAL SQUADS ROUT them and the ROYAL NABOO SQUADRON, ALSO taking out some of their CAPITAL SHIPS, and they call RETREAT and FLEE into HYPERSPACE. The IMPERIAL SHIPS IMMEDIATELY BEGIN THEIR INVASION of NABOO.

    SC 72 EXT SPACE

    The MILLENNIUM FALCON and AHSOKA'S JEDI STARFIGHTER BLAST out of HYPERSPACE

    As they approach Wayland, a RELATIVELY SMALL VESSEL STOPS and STANDS before them.

    SC 73 INT MILLENNIUM FALCON-COCKPIT-SPACE

    REY: Open a Comlink channel. They are hailing us.

    V.O.: Permission to dock with and board the Millennium Falcon, Lady Rey.

    REY: (To BEN) I sense no hostility. (To Comlink): Permission granted.

    INT MILLENNIUM FALCON-HOLD-SPACE

    A group of Noghri come aboard the SHIP.

    LEADER: We greet you, Lady Palpatine. I am Cak'maim, Warrior of the Clan Eiku'mir. I lead the Honor Guard in your service and protection. To your service and protection we commit ourselves and our lives.

    REY: As the Mal'ary'ush, I accept your service.

    EIKH'MIR: My Lieutenant, Mob'vetar, Clan Ha'kar.

    MOB'VETAR: (Bows) At your service, Lady Palpatine.

    REY: My husband, Ben Solo-Skywalker.

    EIKH'MIR: We greet you. The Noghri honor the consort of the Lady Palpatine.

    BEN: Thanks, a pleasure meeting you, too.

    EIKH'MAR's EYES go WIDE.

    EIKH'MAR: Could it be? (Grabs Ben's LEFT HAND suddenly, sniffing it DEEPLY.) It is! We greet you, Lord Vader! We are most honoured by your presence. We are awestruck that the offspring of Lord Vader is the consort of the offspring of Lord Sidious! We shall triple our guard and do anything you ask.

    BEN: We are on our way to Wayland. We could use some help keeping away the wild animals and unfriendly native tribes as we locate Thrawn's cloning facility down there. Would you do anything against Mi'th'raw'nuruodo?

    MOB'VETAR: With all due respect to Thrawn, your orders now supersede his, as you we see as a MUCH greater POWER and AUTHORITY than he. Yes, we can help you. We intended to help you locate the facility on Wayland all along, which is why we came to dock with your GREAT and honoured vessel, the Millennium Falcon, knowing from our spies who monitor communications between Luuke and his Master Joruus C'baoth, two Dark Jedi who seek your utter destruction, your mission to Wayland below. While we cannot help you defeat them, being powerless to do so, we can and will help you find both their Cloning Facility and Hidden Mountain Fortress, as well as keep all hostile animals and native tribes at bay as you asked.

    SC 74 EXT SPACE

    The Falcon, the NOGHRI SHIP and AHSOKA'S FIGHTER approach Wayland.

    SC 75 EXT WAYLAND-JUNGLE-DAY

    The THREE SHIPS LAND ON A FLAT SURFACE IN A LARGE CLEARING. The NOGHRI disembark FIRST and SPREAD OUT, forming a SAFE PERIMETER AROUND AHSOKA, who gently and gracefully climbs out of her SHIP and WALKS CONFIDENTLY FORWARD with a GRACEFUL SMILE, and LANDO, CHEWIE and the FOUR JEDI followed by the FOUR DROIDS.

    SC 76 WAYLAND- ENCAMPMENT- JUNGLE-NIGHT

    BEN and REY consult with TWO NOGHRI.

    BEN: How much further to the Cloning Facility.

    BAK'UR'AWDI: Our advance scouts report that it should take another six days by foot.

    REY: We are nearly out of food and potable water. Can you obtain anything of that nature for us?

    LIM'UR'CAN'I:
    You are Lady Palpatine and Lord Vader. You command and we obey. We shall hunt edible game for you and dig a well to obtain pure spring-water we can find with our technology. We will do so at once, Lady Palpatine.

    A BAND of SIX NOGHRI IMMEDIATELY leave to do her bidding, leaving three OTHER NOGHRI PLUS LIM'UR'CAN'I and BAK'UR'AWDI.
